Review: Kyo No Oto Aonibi


Kyo No Oto Aonibi

Here’s another nice blue ink from the Kyoto ink samples I got from Everything Calligraphy. This one’s from the Kyo No Oto line, and it’s called Aonibi. It’s a dark blue ink, quite in the neighborhood of blue black, though not too highly saturated. It’s a nice ink to use for daily writing, even for work because it’s a sufficiently-saturated, well-behaved kind of blue. Not a crazy shade, just a dark blue ink that doesn’t necessarily stand out except for the subtle shading. The drying time is pretty fast at about 10 seconds, though I did use a European fine nib for the writing sample. I would put the flow at slightly dry to moderate. Here are a few close ups of it.
